Larry Bertlemann, South Shore, Oahu, mid 1970’s

Larry Bertlemann, South Shore, Oahu, mid 1970’s. From memory this shot was on the cover of American Surfer magazine. He’s riding a “Sting” shaped by Ben Aipa. I’m guessing Al Dove did the color design on it. Larry, Buttons & Mark Liddell rode Aipa Sting’s & we’re all pushing the envelope when it came to high performance small wave surfing. With letters from Ronnie Romero (who shot Super 8 vision of them ) to me raving about Aipa Sting’s & the above 3 surfers ripping the South Shore to shreds inspired me to contact Ben & order some boards. I absolutely loved them & three of the Sting’s that Ben shaped for me are now on display in The Australian National Surfing Museum in Torquay. @surfer_magazine @aipasurf @dukeaipa #benaipa #larrybertleman @lbertlemann
